Ricky Stevens said: “We wanted to maximise our results after the trials and tribulations on Friday, when a part failed in the engine during free practice, so we were a little disappointed to finish fourth in both races.
“However, given the bad luck we’ve suffered at Cadwell Park in the past, it’s not a terrible result and it means we’re only 16 points off third in the championship standings with our strongest circuits yet to come.”
“We've just got to keep plugging away and winning points and podiums although it’s disappointing that the big win is still eluding us. Breaking the lap record was certainly a big high and a second and two fourths is great, but I’d be lying if I said we didn’t want more. “That said, we’ve secured our best result of season this weekend so we’re going to Cadwell Park feeling much more upbeat and who knows what we can achieve?” Ben Holland said: “Technical issues with the bike marred qualifying and race one. However, in race two we started last and managed to fight our way up to sixth which was a great result but race three was only a five-lap dash and we were black flagged.“It looked like smoke was coming from the engine but in the end it was only from the tyre and the wheel so we could have carried on which was unfortunate. This season has been really tough so far and we’re just taking each weekend as it comes.”

Despite Philp still being a novice on sidecars this year the victories have come to them thick and fast along with pole positions and fastest laps and it hasn't gone unnoticed by the British Superbike Race Director Stuart Higgs who has given the duo four wildcard rides in the Molson Group British Sidecar Championship. Philp is definitely a talent to watch for the future and with experienced sidecar passenger Allum alongside him he has certainly exceeded all expectations this year.
